Last month, the Stiletto Gang members shared where each most wanted to go when the world opened up again. Now, with summer here, people are making vacation plans. As always, each of us has a different idea for our perfect summer vacation – beach, mountains, on the road, or staycations.
Bethany Maines – Outdoors someplace sunny. Could be the
beach or the mountain or my backyard, but I want ice cream, a nap, and some
Gay Yellen – Mountains. Hiking in a cool mountain forest
is the best break from summer in the city.
Mary Lee Ashford – My summer
vacation preference would be outdoors with a beach and a book! Staycations are
fun but I’ve been working from home since March 2020, so I am more than ready
to see some walls that aren’t my own. (1/2- Sparkle Abbey)
Shari Randall – I’d love to
go somewhere with great museums and theater. I live near a beach, so I’ll admit
it, I’m spoiled.
Linda Rodriguez – Anymore, I’m
a stay-at-home person most of the time, thanks to health issues. In summer, you’ll
find me inside in the air conditioning or sitting on my spacious porch, spinning
or knitting and chatting with my neighbors.
Anita Carter – Definitely outdoors. One of my favorite
vacations was when my husband and I traveled to Hawaii for 10 days. We island
hopped, had the best time at the beach, and hiking through the mountains and around
the volcanos. I’d love to go again. (1/2 Sparkle Abbey)
Debra H. Goldstein – I’m a beach
person – even if viewing the waves lapping the sand from an airconditioned
room. Of course, now that Broadway is going to be opening at the end of Summer,
I wouldn’t mind making a trip to New York part of my summer vacation.
T.K. Thorne – I have to see the ocean regularly or
something inside doesn’t get fed. Also, I live on a mountain, so I get my tree
and fresh air fix every day.
Debra Sennefelder – Staycation.
I really don’t like summer weather. I much prefer air conditioning.
Kathryn Lane – My husband and I spend the summers in the mountains
of northern New Mexico, near Taos, where we enjoy outdoor adventures as well as
watching wildlife drift by from our cabin deck.
Dru Ann Love – I like sightseeing various locations, so
outdoors. Staycations are good as well.
Kathleen Kaska – It’s the
beach for me – anytime.
Lois Winston – I much prefer a warm getaway in the winter,
but I’m not a beach person. I love exploring museums, ancient sites, and
